Sizzling steak stir-fry & Gorgeous gado-gado

Make the gado-gado salad first, but do leave the dressing on the side for the time being. I had to prepare the steak as a whole, just because of the amount of people I cook for. But by all means do follow this recipe below and just leave the noodles out if you wish to…

Blue cheese & apple burger with bombay potato salad

Make it your own, I would say. Put the apple slices on top of the burger or leave it aside with a little lemon squeezed over them and a small grind of pepper. We didn’t meld the blue cheese on top of the burger as we have many to handle ๐Ÿ˜‰ and not all like…

My first BUXday!

Last Wednesday I had my first year at BUX. It was MY BUXDAY! I did ask all my colleagues to tell me what their favorite dishes were that I made for lunch over the past year. The response was great and I had to pick out the most favorite, which wasn’t easy. This is how…

Crunchy Cajun chicken

I adapted Jamie Oliver’s recipe a little and used mini corn instead of corn on the cobs. The butter is a must! Absolutely delicious. We did serve the chicken in a ciabatta roll, like a chicken sandwich. -enjoy- Ingredients (Serves 4) 2 fresh red chillies 1 clove of garlic sea salt freshly ground black pepper…

Baked potato with rapid ragu & green bean salad

This rapid ragu is a Nigella Lawson recipe, the baked potato was my own idea to add. Together with the cold bean salad and almond shavings, this dish became more of an early dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  -Enjoy- PS: I did make a vegetarian version as well. Just leave the pancetta and lamb out. The caramelized onions…

Quinoa and haloumi spring salad

A great combination with the Lamb and feta meatball flatbreads. My colleagues at BUX munched their way through this healthy lunch, some of them even came back for thirds… We did skip the haloumi in this recipe. The reason why was because we just did not order it. So improvising is a great thing, skipping…

Chicken Teriyaki

We are so lucky with our food supplier “de Kweker“, the chicken thigh fillets were superb again today. The meat was so tender. I am sure that the marinate made it deliciously soft as well, but you do need good quality chicken for this recipe. Make sure you let the liquid boil down to a…

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Stilton Soup

The original ingredients of this recipe consist of mainly broccoli and Stilton. Just because our grocery supplier didn’t have enough broccoli in stock, we opted for cauliflower. Also, we changed the dried thyme for dried Italian herbs, which worked out really well. This soup is quite filling, but absolutely gorgeous. It’s great to add this…

Salmon en croute

It was madness in the BUX kitchen and office yesterday. The new coffee machine arrived at the same time as the Graffiti/Street artist Tim Rodermans, who turned our office wall into a vibe of fantastic colors. Meetings were finding place everywhere and everybody was in an overexcited Easter mood. You can guess that lunch wasn’t…
